The highly anticipated Bentley Manual for the MINI has finally arrived on store shelves. Here's the low-down from Bentley themselves:

This is the only comprehensive, single source of service information and specifications available for MINI models from 2002-2004. The aim throughout this MINI repair manual has been simplicity, clarity and completeness, achieved through practical explanations, step-by-step procedures and accurate specifications. Whether you're a professional technician or a do-it-yourself MINI owner, this manual will help you understand, care for and repair your car.

Bentley Publishers' new MINI service and repair manual is based on factory information, but is heavily supplemented by hands-on experience and illustrations. The service manual editorial team has disassembled and photographed several MINI models for this project in the Bentley Service Information Research Center.

You can find out more at Bentley's site. Oh and for those that, for some reason or another don't like paying retail ($99), Amazon has the manual for only $67.97.
